Please help me to guide how can I control my weight. I stopped using Respirodone 4 months and then problem increseed with full intensity. so I use to take it from last 2 months.Before 2 months , I was 60 and now in just 2 months, I am 67 KG. Its horrible to increase 7 KG in 2 months. I eat less , even I dont take my lunch. I eat Breakfast and Dinner only.What else I can do to control my weight.
You could try Invega which is a lot like risperidone but may have less weight gain. You could try Latuda which is a little different but causes no weight gain. Regardless, it’s helpful to use an all like MyFitnessPal to count calories. Eating is the most important factor, more than exercise. Exercise can allow you to eat more without gaining weight which is also helpful.
